What’s the advantage?
You will be able to access the document direct from your own laptop, anywhere in the world.
Do I need any special equipment or software?
You need a laptop or pc that is connected to a printer, and either version 6.0 or later of Adobe Reader or Adobe Digital Editions software (free for download from http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/ )
How will I receive the item?
We send you an email message to tell you that it is available. This will have your order/request number in the header subject line and will contain the hyperlink(s) to your document(s). Click on the link while your computer is connected to the Internet to download the document.
Note: you are only allowed to access the document from the secure server once, so do not click on the link if you don’t intend to download the document.
How many times may I print the item?
You may print only one paper copy, from which you may not make any further copies. You may not make further electronic copies or convert the file into any other format. You may not cut and paste or otherwise alter the text.
After I get the email notification how much time do I have to download and print it?
Print a copy as soon as you can after downloading the document.
The electronic copy will be available for collection from the server for 14 days, after which the file will be deleted. If you cannot access the file within this time, you should contact the Bodleian Law Library ILL staff.
Can I forward the item?
Yes, providing you have not opened the item from the link in the email notification. You can simply forward the email message to another email address. Before doing this, however, do make sure that they have version 6.0 or later of Adobe Reader or Adobe Digital Editions installed on their computer.
Can I save items on my hard drive?
No: it is important that you remember to print the item!
What if it all goes wrong?
It won’t! – but this is a pilot: the Library will arrange for the document to be supplied again electronically or by photocopy, or give you a refund.
Where will the document have come from?
From the British Library Document Supply Service
